The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Rule 206(4)-5 went into effect on March 14, 2011 and has had a big impact on the PAC community. The rule places prohibitions on services provided to a government entity and campaign donations, as well as the use of third-party solicitors, and bundling efforts by those who may be seeking government contracts.
